Oh hun, don’t think like that! You don’t need to be a size 4 to be beautiful!! You are the bride, and will be the most beautiful woman at your wedding, don’t fret!

@Seashells7:  all of my bridesmaids are a size 4 and I’m a size 16.  Don’t worry nobody will look better than you on your day.

@Seashells7:  you are the bride! Everyone will be ooing and ahhing over how beautiful you look. And most importantly your FI will only care about you and how much he loves you. ive never paid much attention to the bridesmaids in a wedding. Keep your head up high where it belongs 🙂

@Seashells7:  A bride is never comparable to her bridesmaids. Its like comparing apples and oranges! I always check out other women, I appreciate female beauty at the same time being heterosexual. I’ve seen so many photos on the Bee of brides with their bridesmaids and the thought never crossed my mind. 

This is going to sound vain 🙁 I wanted to my bridesmaids to look as good as possible. This might be a subconcious thought of not wanting to be associated with unpretty things.

@Seashells7:  Just wanted to clarify when I said the thought never crossed my mind I meant the following thoughts: “oh wow this fat bride has hot friends” or even the other way “hmmm she doesn’t have good looking bridesmaids” or “hhhmm I knew it, good looking women only make good looking friends!” – these just don’t cross people minds when it comes to weddings

@Seashells7:  On your wedding day you are going to shine no matter what size your dress is. I don’t care if your BM’s were runway super models, you are going to be the most beautiful woman that day. Stop beating yourself up!

My ladies are a size 0 and a 4, and I’m a 14 (and I have the smallest boobs too). It sucks, but I’m sure you will look gorgeous in your dress and no one will be thinking about your size

Seashells7 :  Hi! I’m sure you looked beautiful at your wedding! I’m getting married in a few months and also feel the exact same as you. Are you able to give any advice on how your day went? Thank you so much! Shayna

Seashells7 :  I felt the same way when I went for the bridesmaid dresses for my wedding. I was size 10 and my bridesmaids were like two 0’s two 4’s and a 6. I used to be a 6 so this made me wish I was skinny like I used to be. Just keep to your diet and even if you dont go down dont worry you will still be beautiful. I feel like some people also just have better metabolisms than other people. You cant like force yourself to be someone else. I totally feel for you though. I am waiting on my wedding picture hoping I dont look huge next to the tiny tots size 0s
